Wonderful ice cream

I had a delicious ice cream cone as the weather was warming up to 50 degrees. I had Colorado Cookies & Cream - fantastic and Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream - it was good. My friend had a sundae - the hot fudge and caramel were great! I wasn't crazy about the waffle cone - too much of a cinnamon... read more

They make all their own ice cream right in the store, and it is absolutely wonderful. A good variety of flavors and toppings. Servers are extremely friendly and helpful. A definite place to return to for dessert or a frozen treat.

This is part of the experience visiting Colorado Springs. They make their own ice cream. Cookies and cream is my favorite flavor with chocolate sprinkles on top. Plenty of other delicious flavors to satisfy everyone.

We waited over 30 minutes only to find two servers who were so dirty we wished we had just walked away. The place is disgusting and the servers hands are covered in slim from dipping the scoops in water to scoop the ice cream and then touch whatever they are putting your ice cream in. Everyone, including the guys in... More

Hi Mary, I'm sorry to hear you had such a negative experience on your visit.

I assure you we hear you and we'll... More

The ice cream is unusual and delicious. Way better than anything you can get in a store (unless you happen to love in happen to live in Ohio and can get graeters in your store). The oatmeal cookie was good but the salted peanut buttercup ice cream and the mocha Java jolt tied for our favorites. Will be back before... More

Go for the ice cream. Stay for the...ice cream. This timeless cornerstone of The Springs is an absolute go-see. Teenagers should awkwardly take their date there, husbands should take their wives after a movie at the Peak. Same for people who aren't married. Locals, take your house guests before they start getting on your nerves. The ice cream is so... More

This place supposively tries to use local products in its ice-cream which local is always a plus in my opinion. I find the icecreams to be fairly average tasting esp when you consider the hefty price tag. Almost $5 for a single scoop. When i take a spoonful of the icecream i dont get that oh my gosh this is...

I had a large cone of ice cream. I like the fact that is made on site. This added freshness increases the taste, which is great. The service was good, and the atmosphere pleasant.

The owner personally serves, they have so many natural flavors. That's why you should expect a line, because it's always full, but it's worth the waiting...

I love, love the ice cream. My grandbabies were tickled with the generous helping of sprinkles. I didn't give them a 5 becasue the wait was so long. Althougth the staff was friendly and helpful.
